Hey all, So I've been cruising craiglist for a Kegerator and I saw this and thought 'I wonder...'

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/app/2509906495.html

Has anyone tried to convert something like this before? It's 5.5 cu. ft according to the post which seems plenty big for a couple corneys and a 5-10lb CO2. I feel like it could make a pretty cool kegerator if I could do it right but I don't know if I would be wasting my money.

Thanks,

Is that thing even tall enough inside to fit a keg in?

Keeping in mind that you will have QD's and hoses coming out of the top so you'll need a few extra inches in addition to the height of the kegs.

I wish I lived there. I'd be on that pronto for a ferment chamber.
